thought it would be better
Had a bosch unit for years that was smaller than this Hitachi and worked twice as well, I find the pressure on this unit not up to par and bought because I thought Hitachi was a great brand. Not when it comes to pressure washers it seems.
Purchased in April 2019 for $399.00.
A waste of money.
The motor burnt out after only one years of use. There is no spare parts or available spare motor for replacement. in Thailand.
The store where I bought it from do not stock Hitachi anymore and were not helpful at all ( Whats a do in Phuket)
Purchased in September 2018 at Whats Mode for $3,000.00.
Good brand name but poor quality
Moyor burn out after lottle use over 18 months
Always had a karcher that lasted for years .Sorry i bought this product Always had a strong hot smell when used.Took back to masters once. Sadly they are also gone. Seems all is lost on this issue. I will buy another karcher
Don't go there
Absolute rubbish and good luck dealing with their service dept. Just out of the 12 month warranty when it died and got nowhere trying to get something done. Was using it when I smelt something burning, I was told it was either the motor or water pump that had burnt out. Either way it was not worth repairing it as it would be too costly.
Don't touch it!
On its third return for a warranty claim, just over a year old, were told it was out warranty. It had even been replaced in that year. The hose burst twice!
Repairer said to throw it away as it is poorly made rubbish.
Makes me wonder about all Hitachi products. I'll never buy another
Not worth the box it comes in
Purchased this pressure machine from Masters as it was highly recommended. Used it 3 times over a period of 12 months and worked fine, went to use it the fourth time after 14 months and dead as door nail. Contacted the warranty at hitachi thinking it had 3 years warranty as it was advertised on the pamphlet, only to discover in the fine print that pressure machines only had 12 months warranty. Thankfully we took out the extended warranty and were able to get our money back, if not would've been stuck with a dud and further $$$ to repair
Died after ~10 months
Bought this machine after killing two Karchers in the hope that it lasted longer.. It was a great pressure washer while it lasted but started cutting out every few minutes and ending up cutting out every few seconds. Took it back to Masters and was refunded as they had no stock.
Failed too Early in life.
Mine failed after 6 weeks of use.
Let's see if the next one lasts any longer.
Further judgment after the unit has been operating reliably for enough time
Purchased from Masters $358. Worked for 20min then cut out making job take much longer and frustrating.
Disappointed I should not have issues with new item
Great HP washer without price tag
Good pressure and water volume from a 10A unit.
Much better than the other green machine I payed a hell of a lot more for a few years ago.
The AW 150 also has a reel to keep the HP hose tidy when not in use,
If it lasts as long as the other Hitachi tool i have i'll be very happy.
I am adding the following to my review after 3 years from DOP.
Have had this unit since 2013 and have used it every week end since purchase. We have 2 4WD's and one sedan in the family and all of these get washed weekly. I also use this washer to wash windows, ...

Do the AW series washers run on metal pumps ?
